I think it is a cute house! I remember the excitement of buying our first home.

I wouldn’t cut down the tree- it is very pretty.I also think it’s a good idea to live in the house for a while to see if it might be providing much needed shade, or pretty flowers or leaves in season.

I’m with you on the mulch- it also is a home for many insects.

The color of the garage door is what is emphasizing it in the pics. Paint the garage door a color that will blend with the brick and it will no longer be the focus of the front of the house.

I can’t see whether the front door is stained wood or not, but there is an opportunity to paint it a color that will pop  and stand out as the entrance to your home.

Love it! I agree with @julies1949:, I wouldn’t cut the tree down either! It’s really pretty and maybe you’ll end up liking it!

I wouldn’t cut the tree down.  It helps with the curb appeal.  I personally love it.

Very nice!  I love the deck and it looks like you won’t have to do much in the way of painting (other than the kids room / will-be office).

I definitely would NOT cut down that tree!  I love the look of trees in the front yard!  I think it woud take away from the curb appeal to remove it.

I like the idea of a front door change! I am a firm believer that an interesting front door, some yard work  and a good wash can give a home an I stand face lift. Beautiful house– and I love the deck!!

Cute!!!! Such a nice kitchen!

I agree, don’t cut down the tree, but eventually get a cute garage door!
